Build a bootable Slackware 11 CD?


Hello Everyone,

As I have searched the entire forum, I still cannot come across the idea of how to make a bootable Slackware 11 CD... In Windows, or a Mac.

What steps do I need to make in order to make the installation CD bootable? Should I have to add any specific files? Please let me know.



Thanks,
Phil

The Slackware install CDs are already bootable, you just need to burn the ISO and start your computer up with the disc.

And change the boot order in the BIOS if necessary.

I have tried that. My CD-RW is configured to boot first, but it bypassed my Slackware 11 CD!!!!!!! And booted Windows.

Anything weird here?

That is pretty common. It could be a dirty lens in the drive, a bad burn, a corrupt download, or even the media you burned it on. Some drives have problems reading CD-RW over CD-R. Some older drives can't even read burnable CDs reliably.
